To ensure that you get all the guidance needed to become the captain pilot you aspire to be, OxfordSaudia Flight Academy has purchased a fleet of 60 Diamond airplanes, which are famous for being the safest training airplane models. All our airplanes have been made-to-order for OxfordSaudia Flight Academy.
Our fleet features two models of Diamond airplanes: DA40 (single-engine) and DA42 (Twin-engine). The planes are equipped with Garmen G1000 NXi, the most advanced flight navigation system to date, a flight management system to train the student on activating and operating the autopilot system. The system enjoys other features like TAS and enhanced terrain awareness which help the pilot to navigate better and avoid other aircraft through utilizing visual and aural warnings.
1- Avidyne TAS 605 – Traffic Advisory System (Avidyne)
2- FDR – Flight Data Recorder (ApiBox)
3- Garmin G1000 NXi – Glass Cockpit (Garmin)
4- Garmin GTX 335 R Remote ADS-B Transponder – Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (Garmin)
5- Air Conditioning System
6- Built in Tablet Mounting System – for iPad Mini (Apple)
OxfordSaudia Flight Academy Diamond airplanes also include glass cockpits which comprise electronic displays and LCD screens which facilitate the pilot’s usage of them more than the traditional gauges.
On top of all of that, our airplanes differ from the standard Diamond airplanes in that they are equipped with the latest Flight Data Recording system that records the entire flight, audio, and video, to playback after the flight and provide flight data report to both our instructors and students to help our students learn from their mistakes better and faster.
Last but not least, our aircraft cockpits incorporate JeppView to view Jeppsen Charts for the pilot and they are equipped with iPads as redundancy for JeppView.

The simulator give the students the chance to practise before their actual flight and it is one of the tools and equipment that OxfordSaudia Flight Academy provides to enhance the training of its cadets.
